City of the Month: Savannah, GA
After selecting Washington, D.C. as our city of the month in November, we decided to travel down south to Savannah, Ga. With its history and beautiful landscape, this city should be on your list of places to visit in 2013.
Calling all art and history lovers:
- Not only are the artifacts in the museum historical, but so is the museum itself. The Telfair Museums, the “oldest public art museum in the Southeast,” is located in Savannah’s historical district and filled with art from both America and Europe.
- Next, the First African Baptist Church. It’s the oldest African-American church in North America. When you travel to Savannah, make sure you schedule a tour here: http://www.firstafricanbc.com/history.asp.
For the adventurer:
- It’s only right to venture out to an activity on the water when you’re in Savannah. Our suggestion, a Savannah Riverboat Cruise. Book your cruise for a fun-filled time with dinner, brunch and lots of entertainment: http://www.savannahriverboat.com/. We can picture it right now.
- The Oatland Wildlife Center is another place made for the adventurer. This is also a great thing to do if you’re looking for something family-oriented. A true definition of becoming one with nature.
For the children:
- Grab the kids and take them to go see a show at the Historic Savannah Theater! Let them witness a performance in the theatre that was born in 1818.
- Did someone say “dolphins”? Before going to see a show at the theater, head over to Dolphin Magic for a tour on “Savannah’s largest dolphin watching vessel.”
We love Savannah because as you can see, it’s so rich with history. If you want to relax on the water or travel to an art museum, you have a choice. We love a trip with good choices. What’s your favorite thing to do in Savannah?
